This looks like a pretty nice lens for a reasonable price. I don't see it come up very often.

It is a nice price, but only about $50 less than KEH sells it for in EX+.

They are a fine lens and the price isn't bad. I think I paid $250 for mine. They're pretty heavy and lack a tripod mount.

This is about what these go for, what I sold mine for .. very nice built & butter smooth focus. A cheap chinese tripod ring can be snapped in place and will hold securely. I sold mine because IQ was only average. It's not nearly as sharp, and there is def lots of PF on digital.
